Fannie Mae Boosts Multifamily Housing Sector
February 6, 2014
Fannie Mae pumped nearly $30 billion into the multifamily housing sector last year, the company says. It cooperated with lenders to finance 507,000 units of housing within the niche.
About $2.3 billion of the total went to affordable multifamily housing, with an estimated $1.6 billion allocated for senior housing and $454 million funneled into student housing projects.
Roughly $1 billion was earmarked for manufactured housing communities, a gain from an investment of $912 million in 2012.
